Thermogravimetric Analyzer

Thermogravimetric Analysis, or TGA, is a classic thermoanalytical measurement performed on many different types of materials. In our laboratory, it is used for

Transfer spectrophotometer

A Perkin-Elmer Lambda 1050 spectrophotometer is used to complement the reference instruments. It performs this function by measuring samples relative to

Transient Gas Flow Facility

A compressor is used to pressurize up to twenty-five 40 L gas cylinders to 35 MPa. The cylinders can then be used as a source of rapidly changing gas flow by

Vacuum Gauges

Most calibrations of vacuum gauges are based on a known gas flow rate that is generated by one of two flow meters that operate at constant pressure. The "piston
